Stereotypes and Representations in Media

on Tue Aug 07, 2018 1:04 pm
Stereotype

Definition: A stereotype is “...a fixed, over generalized belief about a particular group or class of people.” (Cardwell, 1996).

For example, a “hell’s angel” biker dresses in leather.

One advantage of a stereotype is that it enables us to respond rapidly to situations because we may have had a similar experience before.

One disadvantage is that it makes us ignore differences between individuals; therefore we think things about people that might not be true (i.e. make generalizations).

Representations in Media

Represented - describe or depict (someone or something) as being of a certain nature; portray in a particular way.

Misrepresented - give a false or misleading representation of usually with an intent to deceive or be unfair.

Omitted - leave out or exclude (someone or something), either intentionally or forgetfully.

Students look at the advantages of stereotyping for filmmakers: a lot of material has to be condensed into a short time, and a character stereotype enables the use of a kind of shorthand between the filmmaker and the audience.

Stereotypes are learned not only from the mass media, but from direct experience as well. bounce

One of the main places that children and adults learn stereotypes is the mass media. Content analyses have found that advertisements, television programs, movies, and other media are saturated with racial and gender stereotypes (Entman & Rojecki, 2000; Furnham & Mak, 1999; Plous & Neptune, 1997).

Based on what i observe everyday, we can simply be less judgmental and we should learn to think deeper and understand contexts with enough knowledge Very Happy

The most basic thing that i will do is explaining the truth, but if it doesn't work I'll just ignore the judgment passed on me since it may be an opinion of a person.

Public opinion may change depending on the idea and knowledge they gain from media about a topic or issue, so i guess media plays a vital role as a variable that affects the public opinion

It can be used to easily and quickly respond to situations because it makes you think that something would be the same of another thing based on your experience.

Not all the times, because sometimes by stereotyping certain people, their actions might get misunderstood and judged easily. A good example is a man with lots of tattoos and a good body build. Lots of people would stereotype him as a bad person and would judge his actions quickly.
